Leftwing New Republic Claims Obama Doesn’t Believe in Afghan War

Andrew Bacevich writes in the extreme leftwing publication, The New Republic, an following article titled, “Obama Leads a War He Doesn’t Believe In.”

(It is always important to know what the Marxists are up to.)

As a candidate for president, George W. Bush famously promised to pursue a “humble” foreign policy. The events of 9/11—for Bush akin to a conversion experience—swept humility by the board. The 43rd president found his true calling: Providence was summoning him to purge the world of evil.

When it came to fulfilling this mission, Bush’s subsequent efforts yielded precious little. Recklessness compounded by profound incompetence became the hallmark of his administration. Yet of this there can be no doubt: Until the day he left office, Bush himself remained certain that his intentions were pure and the nation’s cause righteous. In particular, he believed, and believed deeply, in the Iraq war.

Bush’s Freedom Agenda ended in abject failure—no liberalizing tide has swept the Islamic world. The promised Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and the evidence linking Saddam Hussein to Al Qaeda never materialized. Implementing the heinous Bush Doctrine of preventive war in Iraq yielded an insurgency that sent millions fleeing to squalid refugee camps. As a direct result, thousands of American soldiers were killed and many thousands more maimed or otherwise deeply scarred.

Despite all of this and more, George W. Bush never wavered. He remained resolute, his conscience clear. He knew he was doing God’s work. He was—and no doubt remains today—a true believer. The 43d president was a well-intentioned fool, who inflicted grievous harm on his country. Yet when Bush stands before his Maker (or the bar of History), he will say without fear of contradiction: “I did what I thought was right.”

Barack Obama is anything but a fool. Yet when called upon to account for his presidency, honesty will prevent him from making a comparable claim. “The problems I inherited were difficult ones,” he will say. “None of the choices were good ones. Things were complicated.”

The Afghanistan war forms part of that complicated inheritance where good choices are hard to come by. Much as Iraq was Bush’s war, Afghanistan has become Obama’s war. Yet the president clearly wants nothing more than to rid himself of his war. Obama has prolonged and escalated a conflict in which he himself manifestly does not believe. When after months of deliberation (or delay) he unveiled his Afghan “surge” in December 2009, the presidential trumpet blew charge and recall simultaneously. Even as Obama ordered more troops into combat, he announced their planned withdrawal “because the nation that I’m most interested in building is our own.”

The Americans who elected Obama president share that view. Yet the expectations of change that vaulted him to the presidency went well beyond the issue of priorities. Obama’s supporters were counting on him to bring to the White House an enlightened moral sensibility: He would govern differently not only because he was smarter than his predecessor but because he responded to a different—and truer—inner compass.

Events have demolished such expectations. Today, when they look at Washington, Americans see a cool, dispassionate, calculating president whose administration lacks a moral core. For prosecution exhibit number one, we need look no further than the meandering course of Obama’s war, its casualties and costs mounting without discernible purpose.

Obama doesn’t want to be in Afghanistan any more than Benjamin Netanyahu wants to be in the West Bank. Yet like the Israeli prime minister, the president lacks the guts to get out. It’s all so complicated. There are risks involved. Things might go wrong. There’s an election to think about.

So the war continues. Sustaining some artfully updated version of the status quo becomes the easier (or more expedient) course. Thus does a would-be messiah promising salvation and renewal succumb to the imperatives of “politics”—with young soldiers and their families left to bear the consequences.

The question demands to be asked: Who is more deserving of contempt? The commander-in-chief who sends young Americans to die for a cause, however misguided, in which he sincerely believes? Or the commander-in-chief who sends young Americans to die for a cause in which he manifestly does not believe and yet refuses to forsake?”

Comment:  Doesn’t everyone know that Obama caught himself in this Afghanistan war trap by being smug and Obamaclever?    His own mouth married him to the Afghan conflict. 

According to Obamamouth during his 2008 campaigns, especially, when there was difficulty dominating Iraq news, stated they (Republicans)  got us into the wrong war.  We should be fighting in the right war……the Afghanistan one.  

Obamamouth was mouthing political nonsense.  Obamabrain, we hope, knew better than the mouth.  Violence in Afghanistan had not escalated yet.  No one in power was dumb enough to announce a time table…..until president Obamamouth broke the sound barrier…..telling the enemy and appeasing his fellow Marxists,  the month and year American troops were going to withdraw…fair weather or foul. 

Mr. President obviously had never come across  the ancient adage:  “What a strange web we weave when we first practice to deceive.”  

Obamamouth practices web making nearly everytime he is interviewed or “teleprompters”.  He loses sleep according to his own confessions…..”I shall not rest until……”, he endlessly swears,  he  conquers  some things big and heroic.  

I disagree with Bacevich’s claim regarding which president is or was or  isn’t a fool.  

No one is sabotaging Mr. Obama’s war in Afghanistan.  The New York Times hasn’t turned traitor yet as it did upon occasion during Mr. Bush’s troubles regarding the Iraq war by  exposing investigation efforts to catch terrorists before another 9-11 disaster would occur.  No mainstream media is adding woe in anyway to Mr. Obama’s efforts to continue the Afghan conflict.  No television channels are distorting the news from the front in attempts to embarrass and defeat this president in his efforts to conduct business as usual. 

 

Important Statistics Regarding Illegal Aliens

 
 
 
The following information was reported in the Los Angeles Times.  It was sent to me by neighbor and friend, Arlene Taber.
 
 
1. 40% of all workers in  L.   A.   County  ( L.   A.   County   has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes.
    This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
2.  
95% of warrants for murder in  Los Angeles  are for illegal aliens.
3.  
75% of people on the most wanted list in  Los Angeles  are illegal aliens.  
4. Over 2/3 of all births in  Los Angeles   County  are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. 
Nearly 35% of all inmates in  California  detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
6. 
Over 300,000 illegal aliens in   Los Angeles   County  are living in garages.
7… The FBI reports half of all gang members in  Los Angeles  are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
10. In L.. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.. (There are 10.2 million people in  L.   A.   County .)
    
 
 (All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times) 
    
  Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% ar on welfare.  Over 70% of the annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration.

Ray Stevens.com Brings You a Song of Obama’s U S A.

Probably there has been an American president who has been as contrary to good for our country as Barack Hussein Obama. 

I am an American History buff, and many years taught the subject in high school.  I cannot think of any such presidents.   I can list a few  terrifically incompetent persons, Warren Harding and James Buchanan come to mind, but none who so consistently found   Americans and the American nation the enemy as has Barack Hussein Obama.  At best, Mr. Obama is an enigma, can’t we agree?  

It is inconceivable that a man of America leading America, would choose to take the State of Arizona to court because of its effort to protect its citizens from the chaos of  illegal immigration out of control.  Even to waste taxpayer money for such an anti-American undertaking is shocking. 

But the president is not a man of America.  That we must all not forget.  He and his wife have both identified themselves as outsiders looking in with disdain and bitterness for  the country they now head.  They are from a culture or subculture which is outside  main stream America…..a culture similar to a plantation population which has established an entirely separate  network of prejudices and behaviors steeped in deception, hypocracy, dysfunction,  and intimidation for years,  and have been politically, educationally, and socially,  even financially rewarded for it.

Americans voted lovingly and trustingly for this Black president……he seemed college educated and articulate and appeared to have a winsome appearance.

But, handsome is as handsome does.  

Barack Hussein Obama has turned out not to be a handsome man for America.  He is foreign to its personality and its yesterdays.

The attacks by the International and National Left against George W. Bush, were essentially all lies.  Especially the rhyme, “Bush Lied..People Died”, which is something to be expected from the World Left.    Whereas Bush II  did lack certain leadership skills and  consistently  ignored his political enemies rather than challenge them with facts, humor, and/or personality,  George W. Bush  remains a hero in  the task of keeping the country strong and safe after the horrendous 9/11 attack…which attack  certainly has to be counted as an American humiliation.

Immune to  all …….some still  see Mr. Obama as the Messiah, (Inner City blacks and their children, union leaders, Big Health and Big Banking Businesses….Lefty Jews…..the godless, the gays and lesbian world, the ACLU, NPR,  General Motors, AIG, Goldman Sachs…..Global Warming and Climate Changes worshipers, Presbyterian Presbyteries, ACORN, Black Panthers and other usual suspects who prefer Castro Cuba over Topeka, Kansas despite  the realities of America’s present gaunt condition.  

The nation is in deep trouble…..enhanced considerably by Mr. Obama’s dogma and consequent lack of leadership and especially his untrustworthiness as a leader.

But there often comes other moments during such moments of cultural collapse, economic stress,  moral confusion and shady leadership….in other words,  the symptoms of America’s present disease, when humor and cleverness  reach new heights.  Enter Ray Stevens.com.

Please click on the following example of  a creation all Americans can smile, laugh, and be proud of despite the clouds hovering over a disingenuous and untrustworthy Washington, D. C. to see what I mean.  

How about a bit of rhythm and rhyme about our still beloved America……  It never would have been composed but for Mr. Obama’s disastrous lack of honesty and leadership.
